Here’s 2Cellos with their not-quite-classical rendition.
The BadPiper had a go at it in hard-blowing fashion.
A 12-year-old self-taught Chinese guitarist produced this outstanding rendition for acoustic guitar.
Finnish parody group Steve’N’Seagulls tried it in bluegrass style.

And, last but not least, there’s the farming version . . .
There. That should give you food for musical (in)digestion for a while!
